One of the reason I love my job is that it allows me to run my errands during the week. This saves me a lot of time in looking for parking and standing in lines.
However, yesterday I headed over to COSTCO and was surprised at how many people were there. Why was it so busy on a Wednesday morning? Don’t these people work? They can’t all be flight attendants!
While I stood in a long line waiting to pay, I started to get bored. So, I did what most people would do in this situation - I looked around to see what other people were buying.
There was a couple in the next line with a flat bed trolley filled with cases and cases of water, juice, soft drinks, and napkins. I figured they must own some sort of restaurant or store. Behind them were two men. In their cart was a rotisserie chicken, a huge Caesar salad, a bottle of wine, and a DVD. I guess they’ll be having a quiet evening at home.
When I looked on the other side of me, I was surprised to see a lady looking at my cart. What did I have? Three gallon-sized jugs of milk (Baby Bug can drink a gallon in three days!) and 4 large bulk sized boxes of Lucky Charms. By the look on this lady’s face, I could tell she wasn’t looking at the milk.
When our eyes met, she said (I’m not kidding!), “You really shouldn’t feed your kids that cereal. It has too much sugar.” I looked at her and said sweetly, “Oh, the cereal is not for the kids. It’s for me.” I guess she didn’t know what else to say so she turned away.
I can’t help it if I love Lucky Charms. It’s my favorite cereal and I have to have a bowl of it every night before I go to sleep. Strange, huh?
What’s your favorite cereal?
